It Starts With Food by Dallas and Melissa Hartwig

It Starts With Food by Dallas Hartwig and Melissa Hartwig is a food plan based on the Paleo Diet. The plan, Whole 30 is designed to start you on the track to eating healthier foods and get rid of processed food cravings and food with little or no nutrition.
While you can get the plan information (along with downloads) on the Whole30 web site the first part of the book is "science-y stuff" which goes into detail on how your body reacts to food and what keeps it on an even keel (without sugar spikes). The second part gives you more info. on what to eat along with meal plans and recipes.
I intend to take the 30 day challenge and you can see my progress over on Less of Me. The plan is not a weight loss diet, focusing more on a healthy life style, but nevertheless participants have reported high weight loss.

good luck and I shall look forward to hearing your progress. Ray's lost over 15 pounds - just portion control. We are eating less, and attempting more exercise.

I discovered the Whole 30 three years ago, and honestly, it's changed the way I view food forever. It's helped my arthritis, my heel pain, my energy level. Everything. I hope it does the same for you.
